In 2011, the start-up company Kiwigrid approached us in order to develop their vision of a interconnected energy revolution. The Energy Monitor was born – a pioneer in energy management for home use.
Decentralization, individual generation and fluctuating consumption create a multitude of intransparent factors and dependencies. Many of these aspects cannot be mapped with conventional consumption planning. This applies to one's own home as well as to the network of a municipality.
A successful energy turnaround therefore requires sensible networking along the entire electricity supply chain (from producers to consumers). This requires a high degree of transparency and the ability to control electricity generation.
Kiwigrid's Energy Monitor is an intelligent management tool for forecasting and measuring energy production – from your own PV system, for example – storing current stocks for your own use or reselling shares and feeding them into the local grid.
The private producer thus gains self-sufficiency in the power grid. Insights and control options in electricity generation, electricity consumption and advance planning create a more conscious use of energy and promote active electricity prosumer awareness.
